Why is it that whenever a white man says something idiotically racist the next idiotic thing to jump out of his mouth is, "I'm not a racist! I meant nothing racist by that!" Bill O'Reilly, in case you haven't heard, was shocked the other day when he went to eat at a restaurant in Harlem with Al Sharpton and found Black folk acting civil. In the great and wonderful O'Reilly's own words, there "wasn't any kind of craziness at all" during his dinner with Sharpton: "There wasn't one person in Sylvia's who was screaming, 'M.F.-er, I want more iced tea.'" While The Rude One put this into perspective in his own rude way (eschewing his usual O'Reilly article title Why Bill O'Reilly Ought To Be Sodomized With A Microphone, Part x) let me put this into perspective plainly:

Like Trent "All these problems" Lott, his words were not in and of themselves offensive - his words revealed that he himself is offensive. You can not apologize for who you are and you can not apologize for what you truly believe - that's who you are - it's just that O'Reilly has now been unhooded and we can now see plain as day that the falafel-lover thinks very little of Americans of African descent.
